Search Is On for PowerBall Jackpot Winners
Last Updated: Monday, 22 November 2021, 11:40am
The hunt is on for two big winners who landed jackpots on the same night that added up to a combined R150 million. One player won R100 million on PowerBall, while the other pocketed a PowerBall Plus jackpot worth R50 million.
The jackpot for the main PowerBall game had gone almost exactly two months without being won prior to the draw on Tuesday 16 November. The most recent winner was a ticket holder who picked up R86 million on 17 September.
More than 296,000 players won prizes on 16 November, but only one entry matched all five main numbers - 8, 9, 36, 42 and 50, and the PowerBall 4. It has been revealed that the winning ticket cost just R7.50 and was purchased in Margate, KwaZulu-Natal.
The PowerBall Plus jackpot was won on the same night, following an even longer run of rollovers stretching back to 14 September. The winning numbers for PowerBall Plus were 29, 32, 33, 45 and 47, plus a PowerBall of 15.
It was a Quick Pick ticket that proved to be lucky for the PowerBall Plus winner, who spent R45 on their wager. They played in Groblersdal, Limpopo.
“We would like to urge all players to check their tickets to see if they are one of the two multimillionaires, and get in touch with Ithuba and visit one of our eight offices in the country as soon as possible to claim their winnings,” said Charmaine Mabuza, CEO of the National Lottery operator Ithuba.
“Once again we are changing the lives of ordinary people in SA through life-changing jackpots and our exciting game portfolio. Ithuba takes winners from ordinary to being extraordinary. We look forward to meeting our two winners.”
